Contador finished third to collect a time bonus which could prove useful over the coming days of climbing in the mountains.

Yesterday the peloton enjoyed the second and final rest day of the race, before tackling arguably the hardest stage of this year’s 98th edition today, a 174km ride beginning in Pinzolo which is to feature six climbs, including the final punt to the summit finish at Aprica.

The race finishes on Sunday in Milan.
